Gabor closes factory in Liptovský Mikuláš, hundreds of jobs lost

Shoemaking firm Gabor, of Bánovce nad Bebravou (Trenčín region), on November 13 announced closure of its uppers-making unit in Liptovský Mikuláš (Žilina region) as of March, indicating that a lack of qualified staff and job-hopping keeps the company from achieving quality standards.

"Notwithstanding our massive recruitment and training activities, the company in Mikuláš failed to employ and stabilise the numbers of workers needed to secure manufacturing process and goods quality," Gabor chief executive Juraj Vodička said.

Earlier in the day, the Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family reported massive cuts at the Mikuláš factory, which currently employs 410 people. TASR
